School Food Matters turns 15

It’s our birthday! We’re celebrating 15 years of teaching children about food and improving access to healthy and sustainable school meals.

It is your kind donations that help ensure we can provide a wide range of fun, hands-on food education programmes to schools free of charge. The children not only learn about where their food comes from, but also develop important life-long skills through growing, harvesting and cooking delicious fresh fruit and veg.

We have a track record of 15 years of fabulous food education but we want to reach even more children in schools across the country. If you are passionate about creating a generation engaged with the benefits and pleasures of healthy eating, we would love you to support us.

Taking our mission to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show

In May, we showcased the School Food Matters Garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show to celebrate and promote food education and children’s access to nature. Our garden, designed by the brilliant Harry Holding, won the People’s Choice Award (Sanctuary/All About Plants category) and the RHS Silver-Gilt Medal.  

The garden is currently being relocated to its new home - Alec Reed Academy in Ealing and The Beacon CE Primary School in Liverpool - where children and the communities will benefit for many years to come.
